Want to live a longer, healthier life? This book proposes specific exercises on the subject, instructing readers in the backward-flowing method, a powerful meditation technique that can also be used to control addiction. This method not only prolongs life, it also provides tools for facing death without fear. Most people are scared to death of dying. They don’t have to be. Death is only a transition. The spirit lives on. For anyone wishing to connect the dots between the various aspects of the Secret Teachings, this book is a must. Semple looks at meditation techniques across cultures and throughout the ages, demonstrating decisively that the backward-flowing method holds the key to prolonging life and preparing for death.
For the first time ever, a book dares to reveal the secrets of the world's most influential meditation method, a series of techniques originally compiled in the 9th. Century masterpiece of Chinese alchemy, The Secret of the Golden Flower. Not even Richard Wilhelm, the translator, or Carl Gustav Jung, the famous psychologist, who wrote the original commentary to The Secret of the Golden Flower, were able to plumb the depths of this method. This book is an extraordinary statement about the inevitability of karma and the obstacles one must overcome in the quest for self-realization.
In his masterwork, Kundalini: The Evolutionary Energy in Man, Gopi Krishna summoned us to search for, “…knowledge of the safest methods for awakening Kundalini” that would, “…yield for humanity a periodic golden crop of towering spiritual and mental prodigies.” Since those words were written, how has the search for the “safest methods” progressed? In his world-renowned lecture, Activating the Life Force, JJ Semple presents his candidate for the safest method—Golden Flower Meditation. It’s a method he discovered over thirty years ago through trial and error experimentation with The Secret of the Golden Flower. A method he discussed with Gopi Krishna in 1977 and recently wrote about in his highly acclaimed first book, Deciphering the Golden Flower One Secret at a Time.
JJ Semple traces the origins of the backward-flowing method to The Tibetan Book of the Dead and The Secret of the Golden Flower, detailing the effects it induces: • Correcting physical defects, rebuilding and healing the body, self-healing techniques; • Rejuvenating the body while it ages; • Reversing self-destructive and addictive behavior; • Heightening and enhancing consciousness to the point of effecting release from Karmic bondage; • Providing the tools for facing death and facilitating the transition into the next state of being.

First, I'm giving 2 stars for the philosophical discussions presented. I actually liked the discussions about the early life of Christ and the conjecture of what Arius may have espoused. That Christ may have had Eastern training is wildly compelling. I think other reviewers were turned off by the extraneous information presented.
Now I want to just throw down exactly why I docked three stars.
Do you believe that it is possible to send seminal fluid up the back of your spine and into your brain? Neither do I. And while it is true that the Taoists associate jing with seminal fluid they are not one in the same. This book aims to help you get seminal fluid into your brain.
I think the author completely missed the mark. I am a Taoist and am relatively versed in the theory of meditation. After reading 'The Secret of the Golden Flower' I truly believe that it is giving guidance for the microcosmic orbit meditation. It is obvious that it is calling...
I have read both this author's works on the Secret of the Golden Flower. I find them highly autobiographical but still useful. In this book he does a good job of laying out some of the basics of the meditation technique at the center of the mysteries. I do have two issues. Firstly, he only includes instructions for the male version of the deer exercise. As a man this does not affect me, but we need to make an effort to include women. For too long men have guarded these secrets, and now everyone acts shocked that women can raise kundalini as well. Who would have thunk it! Interested women can look up their version by searching for it online. I also wondered why the author did not address active contemplation. All versions of the Secret of the Golden Flower make it clear that you need to do the silent breathing in combination with active contemplation, thinking about thought. The book equates these with circulation and fixation. I feel this important principle deserves a mention. Other...
If you're interested in the Secret of Life and Kundalini. Kundalini is a strange word you can use other terms like the Life Force, Qi, Primordial Energy, Cosmic Power, etc. The Life Force in most human beings is focused in the sexual drive. This energy is much more than just physical. We can sublimate this force and move it upwards in our body into our head. What's the point of this? If men ejaculate every time they have sex, it weakens their vitality. You might wonder where the semen goes, it gets reabsorbed in the body. Now I'm not necessarily encouraging young boys/men to practice this technique. In JJ Semple book he explains a simple way to move the energy up through through the chakras. He bases his understanding on a difficult little book called The Secret of the Golden Flower. I still have a hard time understanding it. I appreciate that Semple has simplified the meaning. Basically it's based on deep breathing instead of breathing with your chest, you do diaphragmatic breathing...
